Our Medical Services
Centre Santé A-1 offers a full range of medical testing services. We also work with Quebec’s most reliable and technologically advanced labs.
If your body has a negative reaction to food, beverages, pollen, or medication, you may be experiencing an allergic reaction. Most allergic symptoms occur quickly after exposure and range from mild discomfort to extreme and sometimes dangerous reactions.
Allergy testing is a simple and effective procedure to determine precisely what is causing your symptoms, and how severely it may affect your body. Allergy testing will also determine whether you have an actual allergy or a different condition, like a food intolerance or sensitivity.
With Centre Santé A-1, booking your test is easy and convenient. It can be performed at our office, or our Medical Technologists can come to your home or office. No waiting or travel! Testing is done by an accredited lab, with most results emailed to you and your doctor within 24-48 hours.
Diagnostic Blood Tests
Having a diagnostic blood test is an important part of your regular checkup. Standard blood tests include a Complete Blood Count (CBC) which measures red and white blood cells, platelets, and hemoglobin. Your doctor may also request cholesterol and triglyceride tests to measure heart health, and metabolic tests to measure your electrolytes, calcium, and glucose. Depending on your condition and history, Centre Santé A-1 can perform many other blood tests at the request of your doctor.
Centre Santé A-1 makes booking your test easy and convenient. It can be performed at our office, or our Medical Technologists can come to your home or office. No waiting or travel! Testing is done by an accredited lab, with most results emailed to your doctor and you in 24 hours.
A throat culture test is a swabbing of the back of the mouth to identify infections, like Strep throat, Thrush, Gonorrhea, Scarlet and Rheumatic fever, Diphtheria, and more. A culture test is painless, although it may be mildly uncomfortable. It takes a few seconds and is done with a cotton swab.
The culture test is available at our Centre Santé A-1 office, or a Medical Technologist can come to your home or office to administer the test. Results usually take between 2 to 5 days.

From Satisfied Customers
“We will never go through the trauma of having blood drawn in a clinic again. My daughter’s eyes filled with fear thinking about taking a needle in the arm, but the medical technologist has an uncanny way of relaxing her nerves immediately. This service reduces anxiety, frees up time and makes life easier!”
“The staff is very professional and very patient with our son. We feel very lucky and fortunate to have them come to our home and provide this service. Thank you. It’s a pleasure to know you.”
“My diabetic husband needs fasting blood tests 3 – 4 times a year. Several years ago, a friend, a former nurse, recommended Santé Mobile A-1 (affiliated with Centre Santé A-1) and we no longer need to get up extra early, and wait in a hospital waiting room while worrying about his blood sugar levels. We just call Santé Mobile A-1 and they come directly to our home to draw the blood. They are professional, reliable, and punctual. They follow through if we have any questions. As an added bonus we are provided with extra copies of the results for our personal record keeping. We won’t go back to a hospital blood centre.”
